Facebook has sent out invitation to a special Mobile Event, happening on coming Wednesday. As usual, there's no information, just the invitation only.

But a few guesses: The most obvious is company's long-awaited iPad application. It could also include more features that involve Places -- Facebook has recently been testing a Deals service that's connected to Places, and mobile is obviously the best place for users to access those.

Or, it could be related to the elusive Facebook Phone.

Also, the reports indicate that Facebook is weeks away from launching a new, redesigned dedicated gaming portal. Details are sparse at this point, but the portal will present a new, more feature rich way to both find games and play games within the social network.

A Facebook spokesperson responded: "As we announced in Sep, we've a games team working on building features to make it easier for people to discover and re-engage with games. We've nothing further to share at this time."
